Each fall and spring, the McFadden Fund Committee invites applications from faculty in the Humanities Division seeking funding for a range of projects that support your scholarly work. Broadly defined, the McFadden Grants are meant to provide key support for those looking to complete projects related to their research, scholarship, and creative activities. Though these grants do not cover travel expenses, they may provide additional resources that are not recognized by other funding sources. All faculty, including visiting assistant professors, are encouraged to apply, with the understanding that priority is given to tenure-track and non-tenure track continuing faculty members (as defined in the Faculty Handbook). Follow this link to the application form, updated every fall and spring on the Center for the Arts and Humanities website.
